He needs to GO and should have been replaced 2 years ago!! Scioscia
    is the and that ptiching manager are the only TWO reasons we are in last place this season and All I can see is if Artie decides to keep him and that pitching Coach we will not see anything better than 3rd place till 2019. So, Angels Fans its time Buckle up because its going to be a ruff 5 years and I will almost bet that Trout and anyone with any asperations will wont off this team asap. I would!!! Artie will go down in Baseabll history as the Owner who Could have had a WORLD SERIES TEAM!! WAKE UP ARTIE BEFATE!!!!!!!
